Subject: Very good
As ERD says, it's nice seeing scenes of the 1930s (traffic, etc).
Subject: Excellent 1930's Driver's Ed. film
Well done Driver's Ed. film for its time. Enjoyed seeing the 1930's cars and streets as well.
Subject: Devil & Angel on sholder routine done differently... Will Sensible Sam Prevail??
Another good Handy Jam Educational film.
I thought it was interesting how the right from wrong concience was played out by Sensible Sam and his nemisis.
Subject: Hurray for Sensible Sam!
Reckless Rudolph and Sensible Sam, when not duking out with each other in the ring, (and IÃÂ¡ÃÂ¯ll repeat what Umass asked.. Why do they have no nipples?) have nothing better to do then to pass evil thoughts into a driverÃÂ¡ÃÂ¯s head. The bad guy tells him to speed up, the good guy tells him to slow down, the bad guy tells him to pass someone, the good guy says to donÃÂ¡ÃÂ¯t worry about it, etc etc. ItÃÂ¡ÃÂ¯s sort of fun examining the topic of road rage during the 1930ÃÂ¡ÃÂ¯s I guess, but this is a bit repetitious. Nice count out/down sequence at the end though.
Subject: Drive Fast, Take Chances!
This film shows good examples of road rage in it's early stages. Be on the look out for the bizarre and creepy Mad Mountain Character (old scary guy wearing a diaper who pushes cars downhill).
Subject: "I'll be seeing you!"
First why do the cartoon characters have no nipples?
Second, great shots of different scenes involving California highways, 1930ÃÂÃÂs cars, and city streets.
Third talking voices in your head? Would you want this guy on the road?
Subject: still true today, tomorrow
In this film, students of driving methods learn the basic principals of mass flow, accelleration/decelleration, mass movement syncronization, ect... neccessary to operate an automobile like a professional. timeless classic.

Subject: We Drivers
Animated Reckless Rudolph and Sensible Sam battle in the boxing ring, and over the soul of the average driver, like in cartoons when a character has a moral dilemma and a little devil whispers in one ear and an angel in the other. Sensible Sam wins, of course, and the boxing ring countdown turns into a list of ten rules for traffic safety, ending with "Obey all laws!" Like many films of this type, its message is undercut by its dogmatic tone and the goody two-shoes quality of Sensible Sam.
